Right, got my celica supra, and I love it, but I want to give it a suspension overhaul, too many knocks and clonks for my likings.
Ive seen I can get new lower balljoints for the front for cheap, presume theyre pressed into the wishbone?
Can you get polybush kits for the front wishbones/tierods etc?
Whats the best route to go? wouldnt mind it sitting a bit lower but dont want to ruin ride quality!
Hey man,Glad to hear your having fun with the car. it all depends on how drifty you want to go with the car, i could do a stcky write up, but there's no perfect set up for everyone. What i can do is tell you how to do it on the cheap...
Sitting a bit lower, but keeping the ride quality is a bit of a toughie really, short of getting slightly uprated springs and say koni dampers, whiteline anti roll bars would be compliant for the road most of the time i suppose, but they are pretty soft and mushy when you throw them into a corner if the suspensions old and tired.
With mine i'm running Whiteline adj roll bars (best things ever!) Mk2 mr2 rear dampers in the front With 40mm chopped out of the strut tube for more shock travel. Nissan s13 adj top mounts, rally design coilover sleeves and 8kg/f (450LB) Springs.
Rears i got 2 coil chopped springs, and tokiyo hp dampers. And thats it. you could also use bmw e36 rear dampers on the rear,
But, there is a better way where you just buy some second hand nissan s13 coilovers and run the softest springs in the front.
I'm waiting for my set of s13 coilvers from a guy off driftworks and soon after i get them i will be releasing a very well made and priced trick conversion kit with all the bits so you can proper coilovers on them ;D Been looking at getting a batch of poly rack mount bushes today as well.gunna have a measure up at the weekend
